Hollyoaks' Joel Dexter is about to make an eyebrow-raising admission regarding his relationship with Goldie McQueen.

The pair are looking to tie the knot in the near future, but in scenes airing on January 4 at 7pm on E4 (and January 5 at 6.30pm on Channel 4), he'll kick off the New Year in surprising fashion while chatting to ex-fiancé Cleo McQueen.

After acting distant when planning his wedding day with Goldie, Joel catches up with Cleo at the local patisserie – admitting he doesn't know what he wants anymore.

Could this be because he still harbours romantic feelings for Cleo, or has he had his head turned by Theresa McQueen after moving in for a kiss recently?

Meanwhile, Joel actor Rory Douglas-Speed sat down for an exclusive chat with Digital Spy earlier this month to discuss his character's twisty storyline.

"To be honest I don't think [a Joel/Cleo reunion] is ever going to happen at this rate," he teased. "We don't know what happens in the storylines far in advance but I can't see it happening, although it would be ace wouldn't it? I think everybody would like it, everybody would want it.

"If he gets with Theresa, it would be lovely to see that bad side of Joel coming out again – I would love to do some research into that and bring that off the page and really change him as a character for that.

"To be honest, I think it would be so cool to have him back with Theresa just because you'd get another level of Joel which we have not seen really in the four years that I've been back in the show. I definitely think that would be the most exciting avenue."

Hollyoaks currently airs new episodes from Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on Channel 4, with first look screenings at 7pm on E4. Classic episodes, titled Hollyoaks Favourites, air on Fridays at 7pm on E4.
